“Tremendous. A beautiful and peaceful adventure!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Me and my husband were tremendously blessed by our stay at Couchman's cottage! Wonderful views of the country and the sea, exploring and learning about the history of Porlock and enjoying the calm and pleasant scenery. We had a great time and will definitely go back again soon! We would recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

“A fantastic break on Exmoor!”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 for a stay in March 2013

A fantastic break! Not really sure what was the highlight: the cottage itself, or the range of activities quite literally on its doorstep.

The cottage is perfectly located: easy to access, loads of space for parking and wandering around (the gardens, with views of the sea, are beautiful). Extremely comfortable to stay in (would seriously think about coming back in winter to appreciate spending more time by the woodburner). And, loads we could do nearby: from wandering down to local pubs, to exploring walks on the moors and in the woods, to the more adventurous one getting a great horse ride from a recommended stables nearby. The hosts are welcoming, friendly, and a font of local knowledge. Thank you; and highly, highly recommended!

“Beautiful Setting!”

people found this review helpful

As stated by other reviewers the cottage has everything you will need, it is in a beautiful location just outside the lovely little town of Porlock. The owners are very welcoming and are very knowledgable regarding the area. We found everywhere in this part of the world to be extremely dog friendly and welcoming. There are a wealth of good pubs, restaurants and tea rooms nearby and so many places to visit and walks to do! Highly recommended!

This was as near a perfect place for a holiday as you can imagine.The humans had a most comfortable cottage full of character in a wonderful location; and Cosmo (the dog) had a paddock all to himself to skip and sniff in. Our best ever rental.
